    Raven Frost...

    So Many things give Ar... it's about which items are worth using. With Angelic Ammy + 2 rings you'll Never want for Ar.

    Atma's/Metalgrid both boost it.

    there are also charms which are a good source of AR.

    Instead of AR charms, try to see if Sharp/Fine charms won't do the job for you first. Not as much AR as steel charms, but hey... the damage boost makes it worth it. In .09 (when it seemed any item in the game was simple to get) I have characters stuffed with 7sharp grands, 7 fine smalls, 1 sharp large and a tome of identify(tp's in belt). :) So I didn't even need angelics for many of my melee only character.

    well, if yuo're going for maces, I always think about onehanded ones (don't know why) so, I think about dual baranar, one baranar gives like, somewhere around the +200% to AR, so if you use dual bara, that gives +400% AR, I do not think you'll have any problems now... ;)

    Untrue. The AR% Boost applies only to the weapon that has it. So each B-star would have +200%, not +400%.

    Wacken, No offense but you just repeated what I said...

    Grab yourself a raven frost and metalgrid. You should be ok from that. You may need one or two ar charms but thats a pretty big bonus there.

    you *could* socket your weapon(s) with Jah rune for the "Ignores Target's Defense" mod, but thats a fairly expensive rune ><;
    in general tho, i would tend to agree that the angelic jewelry is your best-bet for an AR boost. Sigon's helm has the partial set bonus to add AR based on clvl, as does Hsaru's boot, but those are kinda.. *bleh*

    Gul runes also give 20% AR when in weapons. No one seems to use them, so they might not be too difficult to get.

    Good suggestion Kreesto, but I'd have to disagree in most circumstances.

    With a 2 handed maul, I like an Ed% jewel to build off that massive base damage. Often 1 handed maces need more speed so you're forced to go Shael. There are just too many socketing jobs that you can do that are better.

    Also, the barb will have his mastery to boost is AR%.... what he needs in that circumstance is a Straight +Ar to take advantage of it.

    Also, on Ladder Gul is still valuable. You need only 2 for a Vex Rune which is very sought after.

    If I were to go with a Rune, it would be Eth. Lowering their defense would do more in this situation than the +20%Ar and Jah is just too expensive and doesn't work on Champs/Super Uniques/Act Bosses
